Robert Redford Trends on Twitter After Fans Realize He's in Iconic Meme

It has happened again: fans on social media have realized that Robert Redford is "the guy in the nodding meme," confusing younger users who were sure it was Zach Galifianiakis. This is something that pops up on Twitter about once every three to six months, and it's always entertaining to see the reactions when fans realize that the Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Captain America: The Winter Soldier star is the guy they've been sharing around the web all this time. The image, from Redford's 1972 movie Jeremiah Johnson, is a popular reaction GIF, often used by people who weren't actually born when Jeremiah Johnson was a movie people regularly talked about.

How Chris Pine Became His Generation’s Robert Redford

In the new espionage thriller All the Old Knives, Thandiwe Newton, playing a CIA agent turned posh suburban matron, finds herself in a circumstance many viewers may envy: across the table from a lovestruck Chris Pine, in a near-empty restaurant with a view of the sea at sunset and a seemingly inexhaustible wine list. They order a glass apiece, white for her, red for him. Later on, midway through a dinner that features as many flashbacks as courses, we will see them with five glasses on the table, three on his side, two on hers. It starts to feel like a long time that this pair, former co-workers and lovers, have lingered over their fancy meal. Eventually we figure out that this setup—two middle-aged spies at dinner, engaged in a tense game of cat and mouse as they compare memories of a deadly terrorist incident that took place on their bureau’s watch eight years before—is pretty much going to be the whole movie.

Robert Redford explains the history and vision that make Sundance special

(Bearclaw Lodge, Sundance Resort by Adam Clark) — Estimated read time: 3-4 minutes. This story is sponsored by Utah Office of Tourism. Pale aspens masked against white snow cradle a slew of dramatic peaks. One peak — an impressive limestone wallscape — looms particularly large: Mount Timpanogos. The second tallest peak in Utah's Wasatch Range, "Timp" watches over Sundance Mountain Resort nestled among thousands of acres of protected wilderness. The fall beauty of cycling the Alpine Loop and hiking among the lingering wildflowers has given way to cross country skiing, night owling (guided nighttime snowshoeing) and carving up slopes. Only the hardiest of fly fishers remain. Winter has descended on Provo Canyon.
